Food Assistance Resources
For Berkley residents, families, or community members impacted by COVID-19, we have compiled a list of food assistance resources that might be helpful to you as you navigate this crisis:
FOOD ASSISTANCE FOR SENIORS, HIGH-RISK RESIDENTS, AND NEEDY FAMILIES:
Oakland County offers a free grocery delivery opportunity for older adults throughout the county. As COVID-19 numbers increase heading into the winter, and in an effort to help older adults still access the everyday items they need without having to expose themselves to risk unnecessarily, Oakland County partnered with Shipt to provide a one-year membership for unlimited, same-day delivery from a variety of local stores.
